— NATURE DRIVES —

Our knowledgeable staff would love to show you around the farm so why not book a drive, or try a self-drive, either early in the morning, or in the late afternoon. A range of buck, birds and even a giraffe or two can be spotted, while the natural vegetation is fascinating: centuries old ghwarrie trees; ancient “waboom” proteas; a spekboom forest and over 3000 indigenous succulent plant species.

Note the ruins of shepherd huts dotted in the veld. Spare a thought for these isolated folk of yesteryear who tended their sheep in blistering heat and torrential rain with not much in the way of food and home comforts, with perhaps weekly rations of bread, coffee and a little sugar.

— 4×4 TRAILS —

Our tracks offer spectacular terrain for enthusiasts with various levels of difficulty, but each route offers breath-taking views and a chance to see rare plants, game and birds. Follow the signs.

— MOUNTAINBIKE ROUTES —

Our Mountain Bike Trails are clearly signposted, so get togged up and enjoy the challenge! Again there is a range of routes of diverse profiles.

— WALKS AND TRAILS —

There are unending kilometres of roads, tracks and paths, through beautiful lush vegetation with spectacular views. Ask our staff for advice on which route to take.

— OLIVE TOUR & TASTING —

There is a walking trail around the olive grove, but a tour of the state-of-the-art olive processing plant is really something special. The tour is followed by a tasting of both preserved olives and oil, while these are also for sale.
